[SVC] An ad-hoc method for developing data gathering systems

A program is disclosed that develops data gathering systems. A developer has to define data schema, multiple Web pages, and page navigations to develop data gathering systems in a card-based ad-hoc application development environment. It takes long time to define them.

This program solves the problem by the following steps.

1) The program generates a schema definition card and multiple Web page cards at the same time. Examples of the Web page cards are a Web page card for viewing data list and a Web page card for editing data record.
2) The program initializes the Web page cards. The data listing Web page card contains a table for viewing data list, and a button for creating new data record. The data editing Web page card contains a form for editing data record, a button for submitting data record, and a button for canceling.
3) A developer can define data schema by using the schema definition card. When the developer defines data schema, the program modifies the Web page cards automatically.
4) When a user opens a Web page created by the data listing Web page card, a data listing Web page is displayed.
5) When the user clicks the create button in the data listing Web page, the program displays a Web page created by the data editing Web page card.
6) When the user clicks the submit button in the data editing Web page, the program stores the inputted data record and displays the data listing Web page. The dat...
